What does plant health mean to you?

Plant health means to me that it is important to look after our plants because each year they go through plant pest and plant disease. So, we all need to look after our plants not just the farmers and the government but anyone else who is also contributing to help look after our special plants. This needs to be everyone and anyone and so we all need to work together to help our precious plants from disaster.

What interests you about plant health?

That there is always something new to discover every day.
